Check out AE’s finale recap!
Last night’s Perfect Storm was a hot mess of emotions. When the super storm hits Seattle, you have to wonder if the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital was built on an ancient tribal burial ground and they left the bodies and only moved the headstones because (to quote my wife from the lesbian series Ghostella’s Haunted Tomb), “This place is haunted and f*cked up!”
The show starts out with Derek and Cristina running down a dark hospital hallway in slow motion. Then a caption on the screen reads “5 hours earlier…”
Back in time, the power is on at our favorite Seattle hospital as Meredith is in labor and Arizona is popping out of bed with Dr. Lauren. Arizona can’t even look at Lauren as she puts her scrubs back on and hangs her head low. More on these two adulterers later.
While prepping for the storm, a newly engaged April fiddles with her engagement ring. Callie suggests pinning it to her shirt. (This is some nice foreshadowing.)
As Meredith gets ready to welcome baby number two, Cristina and Derek stand by her side and tend to her every whim. And because this is Grey’s Anatomy, you know the labor can’t run smoothly. Meredith has to stop pushing because her baby is coming out face-first and she needs to have a C-section. Meredith and Derek plead with their doctor, Connie, but at this point a vaginal birth would endanger both Meredith’s and the baby’s life. (I composed that last sentence just so I could write the word “vaginal.”) A C-section should be no problem but then the hospital loses power and the lights go out. (This is why my sister does all-natural water births at home.) Turn on your cell phones for light because baby Shepherd is on his way!
Bailey scrubs in for surgery, has a panic attack and bows out. When Bailey bolts, Richard steps in and takes over her surgery. The patient needs to have his heart repaired so Richard enlists Cristina, who refuses to operate in the dark. Richard snaps that if she doesn’t operate the man will die. Cristina reluctantly scrubs in but can’t see the where she’s operating because of the flashlight’s shadows. Cristina wants to give up, but Richard gives her a mega-pep talk and tells her that she can operate in the dark if she listens to the patient’s heart. Richard tells everyone to turn off the flashlights and keep quite so Cristina can hear the heart. After only a few moments Cristina finds where the problem lies in the heart and leads the team through a successful surgery. Afterwards, Cristina thanks Richard for encouraging her and making her a better doctor. (Has Richard been redeemed?) Bailey’s husband, Ben, also comments that he now knows why Bailey raves about Richard because he pulls greatness out of people.

We know Patrick Dempsey joked earlier this month about selling marijuana in Tully’s, but perhaps this mini-snippet is onto a bigger goldmine!
– Racer and occasional actor Patrick Dempsey knows better than anyone that high-performance car parts are pricey and sponsorships can be few and far between. The solution? Supplement his income by selling marijuana, maybe. Hey, it was that or hair product.
Patrick Dempsey’s own brand of hair products? We’re honestly surprised he hasn’t thought of this already! Genius!
Is it just us, or does Ellen Pompeo’s daughter Stella look more grown up every time you see her?
Is Patrick Dempsey really considering selling marijuana? Check out this interview to find out
You recently bought Tully’s, a Starbucks rival. How’d that happen?
Neighborhood coffee shops are an important part of people’s lives– it’s a part of your every- day ritual. I wanted to bring Tully’s back to life.
So you’re a coffee drinker?
Yes. I do two or three cups in the morning and one or two in the afternoon, with almond milk or half-and-half. I want to become a certified barista and work in the stores.
Five cups! Do you ever get any sleep?
It doesn’t really affect me. Coffee is good for your mind–it’s basically a legalized drug. The next step is selling marijuana, of course.
Would Tully’s ever sell it?
Great question. There’s a business model there. You could present it in a beautiful, elegant way: a Michelin-starred coffee shop where you can get marijuana.Sounds intriguing. What about the burgeoning artisanal coffee shop scene. Are you into that?
Some of these new spots have a way of making you feel not cool enough–like you’re dressed inappropriately.
What kind of coffee gear do you have at home?
A Miele coffee wall unit, a Krups grinder, a Nespresso espresso maker, and a Bodum French press. Not enough tools–I need a Chemex.
Nah, looks like Patrick’s just being his usual comical self… but with the many talents that man has, he may as well add barista to the list! Click here for the rest of Patrick’s interview.
